For the first time ever in the Tampa Bay area, the Deaf Literacy Center is holding a 100% voices off silent dinner.

Everybody working at the restaurant this evening will be deaf or hard of hearing, including servers, cashiers, and bartenders. The event is taking place on February 15th at 4pm at Farmer Boy Restaurant in Clearwater.

Pattie Sanchez from The Diversity Initiative, Pinellas Public Library Cooperative’s Deaf Literacy Coordinator Rosa Rodriguez, and volunteer/advocate Jenny Locy stopped by the studio to fill Jenn in on the details of the event and why it’s important to bring together the hearing and deaf communities.
